Jangan+Jadi+Orang+Miskin+yang+Duitnya+Banyak

Somehow, kata kaya mempunyai konotasi negatif. Isu kekayaan, baru-baru saja ramai dibicarakan, diperbincangkan. Dulu, kayaknya tabu buat kita berbicara mengenai kekayaan. Yang belum kaya menganggap kekayaan bukanlah sesuatu yang perlu dikejar-kejar. Yang sudah kaya, risih mengakui dirinya kaya, dan berusaha menyembunyikan kekayaannya. Orang kaya, bahkan sering digambarkan sebagai orang yang kikir. Gober bebek adalah tokoh kartun yang kaya raya sehingga sering mandi di gudang uangnya, namun kikir, pelit melilit.Waktu saya kecil, Gober Bebek adalah salah satu tokoh kartun yang sangat populer.

Eating vegan in Ubud is generally more for the flashpacker’s budget (especially if you want to taste everything like we did!), but we were happy to splurge because very few cities in South East Asia cater to vegans as well as Ubud does.
